Does anyone know of a good Chrome OS client to run iPython notebooks? I tried CoLaboratory but wasn't able to load an existing notebook; additionally, the service has been discontinued.

Not a ChromeOS client but Sage Math Cloud is a good place to run IPython plus a bunch of other educational tools https://cloud.sagemath.com/

Interesting that Inbox isn't yet supported on Edge. Gmail works fine, but not Gmail.

If this article is correct and Google does intend to increase offline functionality for Chromebooks, then I would like to see it encourage manufacturers to ship devices with at least 4 GB of RAM. For power users, that capability should have the capacity to increase to 8 GB.
Critics of the Chromebook mistakenly believe that once offline, users can’t do anything. This isn’t true and Google is taking steps to make that clear.

"But..if I start my document on my home wifi then finish it on a hotspot or 4G is it a seamless transition."

+Nate Schmolze  Well Nate, if that was a question, my answer would be, Yes, it is a seamless transition.  I regularly keep 3 or 4 documents open on my Samsung 303 ARM and edit them offline, and when I get to a WiFi hot spot, sync kicks in and "Everything is saved to Drive".  Never lost a character of text in 23 months of use.  YMMV

I love that Google keeps adding more and more features their location-based software but, after a month and a half, they still can't figure out that I use a transit train, not a bus.

I love the new Google Spreadsheets! To Googlers: great job on the update and thank you for offline access!

Using Twitter or Google+ on a 2GB RAM Chromebook is painful.

I'm glad to see they're making 4GB models now because that should be the norm. #chromeos #chromebook

My first reaction to the news from Microsoft regarding One Drive storage plans is not good. Reducing the free cap from 15 to 5 GB will not earn you any friends. I understand that the move is intended to convert users to Office 365, but I think that will also come up lacking. None of this is helped by the absence of a Windows 10 sync client that utilizes the concept of "smart files". #microsoft #onedrive #cloud

Did anyone else lose the ability to create folders in the app launcher? Using version 39.0.2171.94

When I have an internet connection, the folders show up, but they disappear when I'm offline. I'll log it in the product forms regardless

I love my Surface Pro! It's light enough to carry on my daily travels yet powerful enough to complete any task I might be given. Additionally, it operates without compromises when disconnected frying the internet. #microsoftsurface

After three hours and multiple attempts, all my documents, photos, videos, and emails are of Google servers. I wish I could say it was easy, but that would be a gross deception

Has anyone heard when, or if, old Spreadsheets will be able to be converted to the new format?

I would like to see Microsoft leverage Azure and Office 365 to create and deploy a kick-ass "full Office in the cloud" product. Imagine: For $100-$150 per year, a user could, through any browser, have access to all their files in SkyDrive and the complete Office suite through a connected Azure site.

There are two routes to take with regard to pricing and offerings; the first would take the form of a tiered-access system: "Basic" would include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. "Advanced" would add Outlook and Access. "Premium" would add Lync and Visio. Any other products could be added to "Advanced" or "Premium" accounts for a nominal fee. A second possible pricing methodology could be the "a-la-carte" approach where each user, upon account creation or activation, adds access to an individual productivity program for a nominal fee (ie., $10 for Word, $10 for Excel, $25 for Access). These fees, when summed, would create the annual account fee for the user. Mid-year cancellations and additions would be possible on a pro-rata basis.

This is an intellectual exercise, as I understand that this would seriously disrupt the traditional income streams for Microsoft. However, this approach would aggressively combat both the rise of Google Drive and the notion that Microsoft is too Windows-dependent. There are many businesses and individuals that use Office and do so productively. If Microsoft could give them the piece of mind that Office will be available to them regardless of platform or browser selection, it is possible that many more may stay. #microsoft   #office365   #azure

We visited for a birthday party, so were seated at one of their long tables. The nachos were not very good; the cheese wasn't melted on the inner layers. Our friend's fries were rather bland and not worth the $6 they cost.

I couldn't give this show a 5-star review because I can't help but compare it to Ka, which we both felt was the best Cirque show we've seen. Nevertheless, Zumanity was amazing, sensual, and surprisingly funny. The artists performed sing and dance routines that kept the crowd engaged throughout the performance. While I highly recommend this show, don't be under any allusions as to the topic: sex. Sex is everywhere in the performance and, though it's done tastefully, it's still a topic that makes many uncomfortable.

The front desk staff greeted us as we entered, even though we weren't staying there. We felt the rooms were nicely furnished.

We came here for a lunch meeting with colleagues and the service was decent, given the large size of our party; I felt the server did a decent job of taking all our orders as quickly as possible and, when it came time, bringing out the food and distributing to the proper person. The chicken club wasn't excellent, more middle of the road, while the coffee was less than wonderful.

From our experience, this is the most enjoyable restaurant in Vegas. The experience is relaxed and the food is amazing! The chicken nachos, mo shoo egg rolls, and pepperoni pizza are all items I've ordered before and I recommend each highly.

My family and I have always enjoyed our visits here; on separate occasions, we have come here for breakfast, dinner, and happy hour, and enjoyed each experience. Our wait staff is attentive to our needs and quick to favorably resolve problems that arise. The food and drinks are being compare for a local happy hour spot.

The food was excellent! We stopped out of desperation and found a BBQ joint that made BBQ sauce and smoked meats with a touch that reflects care and appreciation for quality. The decorations and the theme fit well in Ellensburg, the home of a well respected rodeo. I sent for several bottles of their original sauce and it comes highly recommended.
